"Realigning your data skills to fit 2020 challenges"

 

As data professionals we constantly see new approaches, and techniques that define, structure and access data. Then new tools come along to facilitate these ideas. As an example, we have centralized data governance tools like Collibra, Informatica and Erwin that provide a centralized data governance organizations. They then provide tasks to support functions such as data quality, reference data management, stewardship, and data catalogs. We then find specialty products like Alation that take a bottom up approach that define business terms and provide relationships, as well as build and maintain Data Catalogs. We sometimes have an overlap in products and can require more than one tool to do our jobs.

We as data professionals are forced to learn new approaches some are centralized and then some are decentralized. Join us at DAMA Day 2020 and learn about these new concepts, techniques and approaches as well as the best way to embrace them and be productive when using them.

John Ladley

 

Be careful what you ask for……

There is good news and bad news. Good news is that is that using data more effectively is in the daily communications of most organizations. “We need to do better with our data,“ and “We need to be more data driven” are common phrases. We have many “points of light” now of data project success.  The bad news is we aren’t ready to go to the next level.  This data stuff can be hard. Leadership can’t tell you what it should look like. Alignment is poor. Data scientists are stumped as to why their data is not up to the task.  Companies get stuck in one or two attempts at data management and governance then back away.   Lastly, even if our leaders were fully data literate, data people aren’t ready.  We have our buy-in, but we are missing some skills and mindsets. John will cover these challenges and lay out some common scenarios to address what needs to be done so data leaders can prepare their own organizations.

Erwin: Danny Sandwell

 

The Age of Data Intelligence: An Educated Data Consumer is Your Best Customer

The data consumers in your enterprise are coming up in the world.  The intersection of three technological advances

–  1) exploding data production,

-   2) scalable big data computation,

-  3) the accessibility of advanced analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence – have established a fertile environment for data innovation and as such, we’ve seen the rise of the “citizen analyst” bringing business acumen and subject-matter expertise closer to discovering strategic and tactical data-driven insights. Add the aspiration of self-service data intelligence and you might wonder if data management professionals might end up side-lined or subjugated in the process.  

Nothing could be further from the truth.  Your skills, acumen and pedigree in keeping the data engines running and driving data value are more important than ever as the business puts bigger bets on data.  This session will outline who the data citizen analyst is, what data intelligence means and how they impact data management professionals, the roles they play and opportunity it represents.

Innovative data management strategies & skills in a Hybrid Cloud world

The current data landscape is fragmented, not just in location but also in terms of shape and processing paradigms. Cloud has become a key component of the modern architecture design. Data lakes, IoT, NoSQL, SaaS, etc.  coexist with relational databases to fuel the needs of modern analytics, ML and AI. Exploring and understanding the data available within your organization, dealing with bureaucracy, different languages and protocols, can be complex and overwhelming.

Join this session to get an insightful understanding of 

  • How competition and the speed of change requires a new approach to data architecture – one that is real-time, agile and provides speed to value.
  • Learn how right solutions and skills can enable companies to transition and integrate data in the cloud to deliver faster time to insights.

GlobalIDs: Arka Mukherjee

Abstract

Title: A Pragmatic Approach to Enterprise-wide Data Lineage

In order to solve significant business problems in large organizations a comprehensive understanding of the data ecosystem is required. This understanding can come in 3 steps.

  1. Understanding what data exists (Data Cataloging)
  2. Understanding how data flows across the data ecosystem (Data Lineage)
  3. Understanding the quality of the data (DQ-ML)

In this presentation, we will outline the second step --- How to automatically compute data lineage at scale? A five-step methodology will be described.
